Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) January 19, 2008
In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nations' leading multicultural internet site, recently named Blue Spring International as one of the Top 500 US Women Owned businesses, 7th among Oklahoma's Top 100 Women Owned Business, 13th on Oklahoma's Top 100 Small Business, and 15th among Oklahoma's Top 100 Diversity Owned Business List.
The Div500 is the 8th annual listing of the Nation's top 500 women-owned businesses. The companies listed on the Div500 represent the Nation's top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a women-owned business is small or insignificant. Div500 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with women owned companies.
"Women businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with," said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business."
Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, Fortune 1000 corporations throughout the country have recognized that buying products and services from women owned companies positively impacts their business. Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.
